Cold Reads: Hellboy: Seed of Destruction by Mike Mignola and John Byrne

Hellboy Seed of Destruction

Here in the grim library section of Classic-Horror.com, I have thus far delved into written works of fiction both short and long. It is my mission to discuss varying mediums of the written word, everything from novels, plays, and comic books. This week's selection is the first in one of my mad experiments in the realm of the graphic arts.

Hellboy is somewhat of a cultural phenomenon. Starting out as a mere sketch by artist Mike Mignola, the character has developed and changed over the years since that first conception. Hellboy is now a force in the comic book industry to be reckoned with and one of the luminaries of the fabulous comic book company Dark Horse. Being no stranger to graphic novels, I eagerly awaited for the moment I could begin reading Hellboy: Seed of Destruction. As a fan of horror and comic books, I was sufficiently rewarded.(read more...)

Ash to Face Herbert West in Comic

There's been a couple Army of Darkness mini-series hitting comic stores within this past year which really have been not all that great due to the fact that they just kind of rehash famous dialouge and situations from the Evil Dead trilogy and bring not many new ideas to the table (and this is coming from someone who would buy and cherish a can of tuna if it had the Army of Darkness logo printed on it), but hopefully things will start to improve for the AoD comics, as t(read more...)

"Man-Thing" Movie Finally Gets Release Date

The most unlikely Marvel character to ever receive the film treatment, Man-Thing, has received just that. But that's old news. It has been for quite a while now. In fact, the film has even been finished for quite a while now. So, after countless delays, when the hell are we gonna see this red-eyed, tentacle-faced creature on the screen?(read more...)

Dead Dog Comics Keep the Horror Comin'

Dead Dog Entertainment is a company I've had my eyes on for a few months ever since I caught an ad for their Night of the Living Dead comic series in Rue Morgue magazine. Fangoria.com recently checked in with Dead Dog to see what projects they have up their sleeve, and they discovered a helluva lot of projects, all of which I have organized and summed up for your reading pleasure:

The Horror Show
This will be an anthology book of short stories based on films such as The Howling, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and a story based on The Book of the Dead created by Tom Sullivan, the man behind the special effects of the Evil Dead series.
Release date: February(read more...)

A new documentary, Tales from the Crypt: From Comic Books to Television, will be unleashed on DVD October 29th and immediately skyrocket to the top of every EC Comics fans' wish lists. The documentary will explore everything the title suggests, plus interviews from many of the artists and writers of the old comic book series and well-known filmmakers and authors, such as John Carpenter, George Romero, and R.L.(read more...)

Al Feldstein Interview

Al Feldstein

Being one of those immature people who still read Mad Magazine, this interview was a pleasure for me. However, from a horror buff point of view, this man is important to our genre because he helped create perhaps the most successful horror comic book in history, Tales From the Crypt. I caught up with him via Internet, and he gave the readers of classic horror a very “MAD” chat about all things from the Crypt. (read more...)

Gene Colan Interview

Tomb of Dracula

In the fickle world of comic books, there is one true survivor: Gene Colan. Well known for his work on the TOMB OF DRACULA comic, Gene has done everything from Captain America to Daredevil to Howard the Duck. I got the pleasure to interview this outstanding man, and he gave the readers of Classic-Horror a wonderfully unique interview. (read more...)
